One night, secure parking and sky sports?

I am bringing my son up to Manchester to have a look around the university, it is a long drive, so we are staying Friday night.

I am searching for hotels in the city center, with some sort of secure parking. Also the hotel must have 'Sky Sports', as we are great Golf fans and want to see at least a little bit of the Ryder Cup!

Any ideas?

There is a NCP car park next to the coach station on Chorlton St in the centre. Not sure on costs.

Manchester has many hotels around Piccadilly Gardens which is very central. Not sure about sky sports?

I went to uni in Manchester and it's a great place to be a student.

Not many city centre hotels that have their own parking, but many will offer discounted rates at nearby NCPs - which will be secure, security etc...

My experience of most hotels in the UK nowadays is that they don't have the premium sky channels in the rooms (movies or sports). Many will have TV(s) in the bar though, generally switched to a news or sports channel. That's for the Premier Inn type places though (which are decent in my experience). The more 4/5 star establishments tend not to have tvs in the bars.

Plenty of pubs/bars in the city centre that will be showing sports though - although football will generally take precedence I'm sure they'll put the golf on at least one of the tvs if there are several.

The City Inn have i-macs in their rooms which serve as tellys. I recall that their London hotel had sky sports on it, so give them a call to ask at the Machester one? As said, parking will be at a local NCP or the like.

the more expensive the hotel, the more likely it is they will have sky sports.
